Man exposes himself to teenager in Farnborough

Police are appealing for information after a man exposed himself to a teenage girl in Farnborough.

Two teenagers, a girl and a boy, were walking over the motorway bridge on Fernhill Road on the evening of Wednesday 10th of May.

A vehicle, which was travelling towards Westheath roundabout, slowed down and stopped near to the girl. The driver of the vehicle then indecently exposed himself to the girl before driving off down Fernhill Road and turning right in to Medway Drive.

The vehicle he was driving is described as an old style silver Land Rover which was covered in mud.

The man police want to speak to is described as:

  • White
  • aged in his 40's
  • of a skinny build
  • with short light brown hair
  • He was wearing jeans.

“The victim noticed there was another vehicle driving over the bridge behind the Land Rover. The driver of this vehicle could have witnessed the incident or seen where the Land Rover went. I would urge this person to get in touch with us.

“I would ask anyone else with any information that could help our enquiries to get in touch.”
